So we weary travelers, from sunny and warm Hawaii, having arisen at 4:30 a.m.and arriving home safely at 6:00 p.m..... and what did we find?....
The furnace was not working! But being the world travelers that we are, and used to privations, we put another comforter on the bed and slept through the night.
We put on extra jackets and continued through the next day until the furnace man came tonight. Just a simple thing -- but it worked. Keeping our fingers' crossed, we now have a happy furnace and a happy family.
Bailey was so happy to see me, he was up and at the cage door when he heard my voice before I arrived in the CAT ROOM in the kennels. He has a little cold and cough, but seems to be eating well and doing everything else well, so we will just keep an eye on him for a few days. He soon found a warm place to sleep, (hey, the temperature outside was 57 !) But this cat who in the 6 years we have owned him never climbed up on the furniture before, discovered that it was warmer on the chair than on the floor.
So now it's on to Christmas preparations. I know, I know, many of you are almost done, but this is my strategy. In addition, we don't have as much family to prepare for as many of you do.
Soon I will post my newest ATC's done while at the islands, so keep watching.
